Let's talk about PAJAMA

We started wearing Pajamas since the day we were born and than never stopped! It's very important to feel comfortable in our Night-Dress since the way we sleep is an indication of how our day will be. As human beings, we need to feel "home" wherever we go; that's why there's no better way to feel cozy and goodlooking than wearing a Pajama!

Have you ever thought about this strange word? Let's talk about it: the word pajama comes from the Hindi "pae jama" or "pai jama," meaning leg cloting, and its usage dates back to the Ottoman Empire. Pajamas were traditionally loose drawers or trousers tied at the waist with a drawstring or cord, and they were worn by both sexes in India, Iran, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

Pajamas were adopted by Europeans while in these countries, and brought back as exotic loungewear. Although the wearing of pajamas was not widespread until the twentieth century, actually Pajamas are generally thought to have been introduced to the Western world about 1870 by British colonials. Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel in the early 1920s made them popular and since that moment beach pajamas were worn by the seaside and for walking on the boardwalk in public.
